Re: “Benny's Restaurant & Lounge

A little over a month ago, one of the bartenders named Chris Anerdon assaulted me and attempted to kill me.
He fled the scene of the crime before the police arrived.
I have filed charges with the city, and am in the process of getting a restraining order against him, and several other employees of Bennys who participated in the assault.
Please, especially women, do not go to Bennys. More than one female friend has been Assaulted in the parking lot and the owner Dana, and the incompetent bouncer named Mike have turned a blind eye to drug dealing, violent assaults, sexual crimes, and homelessness on the property.
I have also attempted to reasonably make contact with the owner to discuss the fact that he is essentially endorsing his employees attempted murder of me(worth no provocation).
I am also in the process of going over the incompetent police office Adam Loughtons head and getting a supervisor to expand the list of charges that are to eventually be served to Chris Anderson and several other employees at this criminal blight on our community.

Re: “Benny's Restaurant & Lounge

Tony...FIRE JAIME. I know 11 people..plus myself..that no longer come there because of her. She seens to hate her job and ishateful person. Maybe shes going through some stuff. Dunno, but her combination of ignoring customers and viscious UNFOUNDED verbal abuse is running businedd away. The word from people that temain is " yeah, shes like that". My question is..why is that ok?

I would say to anyone readinh this...stay away. SO many other placed...Thunder and Buttons is one and the barstaff thete will joke around AND take your order..make good drinks and are tge epitomy of great servicr. Probably why I tip Lindsey so well...HAPPILY spending $55 last Wednesday and want to go back. Go there or ANYWHERE else besides B's with'the "B"!

Re: “Rocks Sports Bar & Grill

First time in, i don't know how the drinks are because i was never served. The band sounded good, but after taking a seat at the bar, the staff walked past me twice without so much as an acknowledgement, let alone asking what i wanted to drink. The manager in guessing then took a seat out from behind the bar next to I'm assuming a regular / friend, with his back to me, and proeeded to watch the band. I more than likely won't be returning. Went to finish line, and was served within 3 minutes.

Re: “Bernie's Place

They bullied a bartender who been there for over 15 years for filing a complaint with the State of Colorado over employment practices. The owner was to have said the bartender was "too old". The State said the bar did in fact engage in retaliation which is illegal after someone files a complaint. The bartender was bullied then fired after 6 months for a bogus "infraction".
Avoid this place unless you support discrimination in employment. Bernie would never have stood for that behavior but he passed away and his ex-wife took over. She is none too bright obviously.

Re: “Benny's Restaurant & Lounge

This was The WORST experience i have ever witnessed in a biker bar ! I saw a bouncer wearing a Kilt Pick up a 5ft tall woman and carry her and drop her for NO reason I was watching the whole thing ! I own 2 such bars in Texas and I have seen & delt with alot of lawsuits ! This one is a huge liability & i hope the woman goes to authorities & a Attorney ! She should also fear for her safety ! I was a witness to it and called the police to let them know i was a witness and live out of state but will come back if needed to STOP this man !

Re: “Townhouse Sports Grill

Great bands/music but the bartenders and most of the waitresses have a bad attitude and service is very slow. Especially on Thursday, Eric the Thursday night bartender sucks in so many ways, he's slow (I'm tired from my full time job he complains!), and Eric is a total pig towards women. Bartender Shea on Tuesdays and Waitress Jennifer could use an attitude tune up too. Chad, who claims to be the owner seems disconnected from what's going on.

Wonderful staff members include waitresses Annie & Mary, both JJ's and Zack from the kitchen.

Re: “Rocks Sports Bar & Grill

Went there with friends in July (2013) and ordered call liquor. What we got was definitely not the liquor we ordered and we're all well enough acquainted with that particular brand to know exactly what it isn't. Double-checked our bill and we still got charged for call so the bartender heard us correctly. One of us was watching the pour and the right bottle was used so they must be refilling call liquor bottles with cheap liquor. We just paid and left. No sense on coming back to a place that cheats us. I wonder if the law knows about this illegal practice?

Re: “Stadium Bar and Grill

Ever since ownership changed, this place has been awful. The food and drinks are over priced and not to mention my wife got sick from the dessert. If you're really looking for a good sports bar to go to before the Sox game, go to Holy Cow, they're food is hotter, beer is colder and staff is prettier!

Just mentioned this to a friend who immediately regaled me with tales of rude treatment and whacko bad beer...the verdict is in.

Re: “Rawkus

Very unprofessional staff. No respect for local acts, even though they "want to build the local scene." I've never actually been screamed at by a representative of a venue, and I've played about 90% of the venues in the Springs. I warn any act going in there to expect to be treated poorly, but I hope you have a better experience when/if you play. Timbo, the main sound guy is a pure gentleman, but the rest of the crew is pretty negative.

Sound isn't terrible, but the tin roof and concrete floors really color it. Lights aren't terrible either, they have moving heads, but they project a screen saver on the back of the stage that seems pretty corny. I'm sure you can request that off though. Stage is white, not a fan of that.

All in all, I wouldn't recommend anyone to play a show here. In fact, I would say try to get the show moved to the Black Sheep or Loft or somewhere else.

Re: “Red Rock Lounge

We stopped in here New Years Eve to have a couple beers. The regulars are not at all friendly and are in fact quite hostile to outsiders. We played a game of darts and a loudmouthed regular wanted to fight us over it. When we didn't fall for his threats, he harassed us non stop as we played. Go there only if you want to get into a fight with a regular. There are bars in town with much cooler clientele.

I must say the place has taken a turn for the worst. Don't rely on my comments though, I am not afraid to be wrong.

Re: “Kelly O'Brians Sports Bar & Grill

Yes, vague is not the way I would have done it. Take responsibility for your employee's actions, what they say, you say. Two words for you: legal recourse.

Re: “Johnny's Navajo Hogan

As a real NAVAJO, who has actually grew up on the Navajo Reservation, I take offense to this establishment's name and business practice. Many native tribes are still struggling with alcoholism, drug abuse, suicide and domestic violence. There is NOTHING Navajo about this place, nor does it compliment my tribe. It is not "honoring" Navajos, it's simply furthering the stereotype that Native Americans are goofy drunks. I will be doing everything I can to spread word about this business' practice and the exploitation therein. Please note.
